Proviron shares some strong similarities to Masteron (Drostanolone) and to a degree Anavar (Oxandrolone) and Winstrol (Stanozolol) but in totality, it is its own unique animal. Though Proviron can serve an important purpose during the phase of physical training, it is not used to promote large buildups in mass. Proviron is found to be far more common in cutting cycles, but once again its purpose will be somewhat unique.
Proviron Functions & Traits:
Proviron has an androgenic rating of 30-40 and an anabolic rating of 100-150. These ratings derive from and are measured against testosterone, which carries a rating of 100 in both categories. Despite having an anabolic rating that is potentially greater than testosterone, Proviron displays very low anabolic traits. This not only enhances the amount of sperm produced but also enhances the quality of the sperm equally.
Side Effects of Proviron:
Proviron holds one of the highest safety ratings among all anabolic steroids. There are some possible side effects of Proviron use; however, most men will be able to use this steroid without any negative issue, but possible side effects do exist despite a low probability. For the use among females, in a therapeutic or performance capacity this steroid cannot be recommended. The rate of virilization is much too high and should be avoided by females who wish to protect their femininity.
üSide effects include acne, accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness and body hair growth.
üIt also leads to severe virilization in women due to the potent androgenicity of Proviron. This may include body hair growth, deepening of the vocal cords and clitoral enlargement.
üProviron can negatively affect cholesterol at a far more pronounced rate than most anabolic steroids.
üAlso the Mesterolone hormone has the ability to greatly affect HDL and LDL cholesterol.
The standard or recommended Proviron doses to treat androgen or male fertility normally fall in the 50-75mg per day range. Generally, the total dosage is split into 2-3 25mg doses per day. In the case of androgen deficiency, the total dosage almost always starts at 75mg per day and slowly reduces to 25-50mg per day depending on the requirement.
As for the performance capacity, Proviron doses normally range from 50-150mg per day. Most men, find 100mg per day to be the minimum beneficial dose with both 100mg and 150mg being highly effective. Total use will normally last between 8-12 weeks. However, it is seen that towards the end of a cycle a 6-week course of Proviron may do the trick.
